Danish Cartoon Scandals – “Information Warfare”

Austin Bay dropped the folowing comment in an entry pertaining to the Danish Cartoon Controversy:

The Danish “Cartoon War” is an information warfare operation by conducted Islamist terror groups and at least two Middle Eastern dictatorships (Syria and Iran).

Read his StrategyPage column for further observations and be sure to check out the evidence that Michelle Malkin has collected pointing to this whole affair being an organized conspiracy:

The imams reportedly spread lies that the Jyllands-Posten had 120 cartoons, not 12, and that the paper was owned by the government. (There are no state-run newspapers in Denmark.) In addition, the imams reportedly claimed that the Danish government would censor the Koran, burn the Koran, and that Danes were planning to make a blasphemous movie about Mohammed.

Read the whole thing. And, once again, the Philadelphia Inquirer comes through bigtime, with Trudy Rubin penning a piece on the lies the Danish imams were spreading, thus providing some mainstream media attention on the conspiracy.
